Crochet Napkin Ring Free Pattern
Jorja Napkin Ring, a free crochet pattern from the Jorja table set
What tableware collection would be complete without napkin rings?
They are so often missed when designing patterns for tableware collections.
I think napkin rings are making something of a resurgence recently.
For many years they have been undervalued in giving your table that ‘finished’ look when you are trying to make a good impression, or simply just like your table to look pretty!
They are also a great stash buster!
Once I had decided to include napkin rings, the next challenge was which style to go for ….
I couldn’t decide and prototyped three different designs.
Problem was that once it was made, neither Sara nor I could pick a favourite to include, so we thought we would spoil you and include all three patterns!
You can decide which ones you prefer.
You will notice that the photos of the whole collection on my kitchen table include all of these options.
I think it gives each place setting something unique, kind of like those glass charms you get to identify which class is yours at a party.
Lets get started ….
As with the other patterns in this collection you will need to know:
foundation single crochet (FSc) (video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG-LiTY_khs
Paired single crochet (Psc) – this is one of our stitches of the week.
You will also need:
- #4 worsted weight cotton such as lilly sugar and cream, I love this cotton or any worsted weight yarn of your choosing. I used Women’s Institute aran weight cotton.
- Size 4mm hook
- Stitch markers optional
- Yarn Needle
FSC – Foundation single crochet
PSC – paired single crochet
Sk – skip
SS – slip stitch
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
FO – fasten off
Option 1: the plain one
Note: this one is made flat and then the shorter sides sewn together at the end
Row 1 – chain 20, in second chain from hook sc, then Psc in each stitch across, ch1, turn.
Row 2 – sc in first st, Psc in each stitch across (19 stitches)
Rows 3-5 – ch1, turn, repeat row 2
Row 6–turn, ss across each stitch (19 ss)
Leave a long tail, sew short sides together and weave in ends.
Option 2: the striped one
Note: you can either follow option 1 changing colour at the beginning of each row, or work it in the round so that you can carry your colours up at the back and not have so many ends to weave in! Surprisingly I worked in the round as I HATE those pesky ends!)
To work in the round:
Rnd 1 – Fsc 19, ss to first stitch to create the round shape.
Rnd 2-5 – change to desired colour, ch1, Psc around
FO, weave in ends.
Option 3: The two-textured one
Note, it is easier to work this one flat and then sew the ends together.
In colour A:
Row 1 – FSC 19, ch1, turn
Row2 – sc in first st, Psc 18
In colour B:
Row 3 – ch4 (counts as ch1 plus ch3), *sk1, ss into next st , ch3,* across , turn
Rows 4-5 – ch4, ss into first ch3, *chain 3, ss into next ch3* across
In colour A:
Row 4 – 2sc in each ch3 space across and sc in last stitch (19 scs), ch1, turn
Row 5 – sc in first st, Psc in each stitch across.
FO leaving a long tail, sew sides together and weave in ends.
